wednesday night. president obama pulled a lot of his punches in his debate with governor romney, so if the original strategy was for biden to go in with a soft touch against paul ryan, we can be sure that that is going out the window. he is coming out swinging. gloves off. now, romney was able to dodge blows against his economic plan because actually there's not much of a plan there to jab at. take his strategy for economic recovery, to fill the revenue gap for a result from tax cuts is an exercise in shadow boxing futility. he hasn't yet told us what it is he's planning to do. but by hitching his wagon to paul ryan and endorsing ryan's budget plan, he attached himself to clearly articulated policy and a record that leaves the whole ticket exposed to attack which gives joe biden an opening to hit romney so hard -- to hit ryan so hard that mitt romney is going to feel it too. from the sound of it, the vice president seems to be getting his weight up. >> what i've been doing mostly is quite frankly, studying up on congressman ryan's positions. i just want to make sure that when i say

president obama will be gearing up for a fight. that's a good thing. we still need the debates. it's a so krat i can sem nor of sorts for the country having the candidates stand behind their podiums forced to answer for nair proposals. we get to see how the ideas stand up under questioning before you decide. at least for some of us, before we vote. here with me today is msnbc c contributor for the blog. latino.com's victoria did he francesco soto. she's a fellow at the university of texas. jam al simpsons and indicate en dawson and gop sharm. thanks for being here. >> thank up. >>> it's going to be october, last month, final push, debates. what are we going to see in the debates in. >> you don't see the two of these people standing on the stage, used their practice lines. studying up. we haven't seen much of mitt romney on the campaign trail. he's been studying for this. >> you think that's what he's been doing, studying, not fundraising? >> totally, he's been studying. he's got to make something work in this debate. he's going to have a tough time to argue to fundraisers and to the repub

even if he has a surge, even if he has a wonderful first debate, even if obama makes a gaffe and things tighten, a lot of votes will already have been cast reflecting the state of the race today. >> the church of god in christ, 200, 300,000 people will be in st. louis on november 6th for their convocation. so early voting is extremely important. >> so you can get it done. >> undecided voters are also some of the people least likely to tune in to debates. usually people that watch debates are the people most tuned in and people that have made up their minds. some of the people i speak to on the ground, it does feel different from 2008 in a very important degree. 2008, it was a lot about hope and change and the idea about making history. electing a person in african heritage in a country built on slavery, a lot of the enthusiasm is driven by fear of paul ryan, fear of mitt romney and fear of what the republican party has become in the last four years. >> i have to disagree with that. i hear that a lot. i don't think the numbers bear that out. when you look at democratic support for

night's performance? is that news story over? >> the debates will have the big impact some are predicting. there's post-debate, you know, euphoria for romney supporters and probably a little bit too much concern for obama supporters. the reality is those numbers help obama tremendously. at the same time, obama has the opportunity now to come back and do what he did the very next day. i think that was a key day for him. >> if he had that sort of debate performance and then we'd gotten job numbers that had us stuck at 8.2, then you start talking about a crisis at that point for the campaign. >> we have a chance to make it a much bigger story, precisely because the republicans have been so nice to us and delivered, for example, jack welch. the numbers were entirely fixed. he's been chimed in this morning by steve forbes, also said these have been fixed numbers. they intended for them to go down precisely under 8% before the election started. this is some crazy stuff going on on the right here. that might generate enough interest to make the debate -- >> i just want to -- just in case anyone

upon thee. that should be obama's slogan for the first debates. >> they don't know the second hour of nhp is a drinking game. >> congresswoman, i'm almost sad i put you at this table. >> really, i'm not ready to pop open the champagne cork for president obama, because, you know, the republicans have what i call scissergy where the sun, the moon, and the stars have all lined up in their benefit to change the game here. number one, they have citizens united where they can spend unlimited, unaccountable amounts of money. if you give me $20 donation, you got to give your name, age, social security number and where you work. these folks, they give millions without disclosing who they are. they have voter suppression tactics. clearly, in all of the battleground tactics they had a coordinated strategy to do that and when they picked paul ryan, i thought, cynically, why would they just hand democrats that gift, a guy who has a record of wanting to take away social security. i have been on the budget committee for five of the seven years i have been in congress. he wants to take away medicare
